Pan-fried bun(生煎包) is a famous food in Shanghai. So this time I chose this restaurant to try the Pan-fried bun. At that time i ordered a dish of Pan-fried bun, there are six buns, and the bun include pork and sesame. When I try one, full of soup was flowing out. It was scalding my tongue. So you must be...

I stay at the JW Marriott just so I can come here (and across the street to Jia Jia Tong Bao) for breakfast. The prices are starting to creep up a bit, but their dumplings are so damn good...My breakfast consists of eight regular pork dumplings and a bowl of their incredible hot and sour noodle soup. The total cost:... More

This place is an excellent authentic Shanghai dumpling place and you don't need to go anywhere else. The bottom of dumpling is fried to crispy, the inside is juicy and tasty, meat and wrapping is the just right proportion. Will be back again.

They were real Shanghai friend dumplings. The place is a dive which makes it all the more authentic. Skip the soup - it was flat but do stop by for a real treat.

We only had the ordinary pork yang's dumplings. They were completely delicious and cheap. Possibly the most delicious thing we had in China. There is a menu in English you can point to. You take your receipt to the window opposite the till where the chef is doing his thing and they will sort you out with your dumplings. We... More

All I can say is it's a tasty place to go. I've been a repeat customer. Each variety is worth trying. Soup's OK as well.

Every guide and traveler has recommended these dumplings and I'm here to add to the momentum. Service is super fast - soupy items are delivered to your table and the dumplings are picked up at the window near the cashier. These are really cheap eats.

The dumplings here are little balls of heaven. Short walk from our hotel (Marriott City Center) on an awesome dining street with everything imaginable being cooked up. Yang's is in the middle of it all and, for us, it was even better than the reviews made them sound. Had the pork and the crayfish, but excellent and the browned bottom... More

After three weeks in China we did not rate the food. And then we had THE FAMOUS YANG'S DUMPLINGS in Shanghai... these rescued the food reputation Of China. Utterly delicious and cheap - you get to order a variety and see them being cooked as you wait at the kiosk-type window before taking them to the restaurant area upstairs. I... More

My friend insisted that I needed to try Yang's if I wanted to state that I'd been to Shanghai! I had the shrimp dumplings, the meat dumplings and then the next day the pork rib soup!!! Let me tell you guys....these are some of the best flavours I have ever tasted! The dumplings were stellar but the soup is rock... More

Staying in People’s Square

Neighbourhood Profile
People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you would expect from the town square of one of the biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow in and out of the area every day to see grand museums, go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and work in the many residential and office high-rises. While much of Shanghai stays busy late into the night, this really is an area that never sleeps with glitzy nightclubs keeping people up until the wee hours of the morning.
